Vestal residents will be able discuss a rezoning plan to clear the way for a major housing project at a town board public hearing.

Landmark Properties of Georgia has proposed building 161 multi-family residential units on land off Bunn Hill and Jensen roads.

Many people who live near the 43-acre site have been fighting the project. Other Vestal residents also have spoken out against the development.

The town board has scheduled a public hearing on the rezoning proposal for Wednesday at 6 p.m.

It's not known when the board may vote on the plan. The Broome County planning department concluded the project would have a negative impact on the community.

A Bunn Hill Road resident has indicated opponents are prepared to take legal action if the town approves the project.
